Handmade bridal crowns and other jewelry

I designed my first bridal crown back in 2006 for my own wedding. I had merely begun before I was caught. It was so much fun! Since then I have designed not only bridal crowns, but also tiaras, diadems and circlets. The tiara on the picture was made for the international beading contest Battle of the Beadsmith 2014.

Look here for some pictures of brides wearing my jewelry.

My models

I sometimes create new models completely by my own head, but I also make bridal crowns and other jewelry according to your wishes! Many new designs has emerged in cooperation with brides to be. Often the bride has an idea of how she wants her piece of jewelry to look like, and it is truly a fun challenge for me to develop and realize that idea.

Materials and technique

Most of the time I use base metals and glass pearls, but I can also use sterling silver thread and fresh water pearls. The soft and easily shaped aluminum thread is a favorite, but I am getting more and more interested in silver. The bridal crowns you see in the gallery can also be made in other colors in both metal and pearls.

The technique I use is usually wire crafts, but sometimes I solder when I work with silver, bronze, brass or copper.
